State releases TCAP scores for each school system

NASHVILLE (WDEF) – The Tennessee Department of Education has now released TCAP test scores for third grade ELA for each school system.

Lawmakers set up this test to judge whether students are ready to move up to the fourth grade.

Many of them have not.

For those who did not score high enough, their parents must now decide whether they will go to summer school, get a tutor for next year, or repeat the third grade.

“Providing districts, schools, and families with data about how their students are performing is essential,” said Commissioner Penny Schwinn. “I appreciate the dedication and ongoing efforts of Tennessee districts and schools as they work with families to help them choose the best pathway for their children and their future success.”

If your student scored “below” or “approaching” are being notified by their school district.
